I have the parts in the garage waiting for me to have sometime to do my EGR Delete and updated pipes. If your just doing those i would think it should take more than two hours. It all depends how fast you can get the turbo out as to how long it will actually take. Physically replacing the tubes doesn't take long at all. The time consuming part is removing the turbo.

Changing out the oil feed tube is a 15 min job.
To install the updated oil drain pipe you have to remove the turbo or at least disconnect everything from the turbo in order to raise it up high enough to be able to remove the drain pipe.
Normally you do these 2 things when you are having some other work done that requires the turbo be removed.

Yep, but as stated above, you can wait until your doing something else that requires that the turbo be removed.
I see by your signature that you have an '03. This job may not be as simple (or cheap) for you. The drain tube will still be an easy swap, since that did not change....but the oil line may not be as easy/cheap.

The early release '03 has a different oil cooler cover and different turbo oil supply line. The difference is how the oil line connects to the oil cooler cover. The newer style line attaches to the oil cooler cover by a collar that is around the line and this collar is screwed to the oil cooler cover.
The older style line is a snap-to-connect style fitting, and appears as though there is a large nut at the line connection to the oil cooler cover.
Below is a pic of the early '03 style. If this is what you have, you would best be served by waiting until you need a new oil cooler installed, since you would need to change the oil cooler cover to use the new style turbo oil supply line.



as an edit: amdriven2liv's post below has a link showing the new style line. Note the difference at how it connects to the oil cooler cover.

Edit:^^^^^^^beat me to the thought, and great shot of the connection.


If I recall, the 03 trucks have a different connection on the feed tube. Make sure you get the correct one. Check out the connection at the bottom of this photo.

6.0L Turbo Oil Feed Line

NOTE: This kit does NOT fit 2003 or early 2004 trucks. The early trucks had a different type of connection at the base of the Feed Tube. There is a kit to update the early style setup to use the later feed tube, but it involves changing the oil cooler cover plate and is significantly more expensive. Please call us if this is something you are interested in doing.


I can't find the 03 part number yet.

If you end up needing to change to the newer style oil cooler cover...
I still have one that I removed from my '06 when I installed the BPD oil cooler.
I would make someone a good deal on it.

Great shot! My local dealer (at least the parts guy) couldn't give me any clue as to what else would indicate early '03 beside engine serial # (mine has rubbed off the block and my FICM was sent off to FICMrepair long ago). A quick look at that photo and it's perfectly clear.
